Chops response pleases Cardiff boss

Cardiff manager Dave Jones felt Michael Chopra was "foolish" after the striker vented his frustration over the club's current crisis.

Chopra has seen City slump back into financial uncertainty, having appeared to stave off the threat of a winding-up order last month following investment from a Malaysian consortium.

The Bluebirds, who have lost Joe Ledley to Celtic, are currently under a transfer embargo and Jones is unable to bolster his ranks ahead of the August 7 kick-off. Chopra admitted he was "well hacked off" and "if this club doesn't bring in new players, I'm off".

However, Jones was pleased with Chopra's response in the 2-1 defeat by Notts County on Saturday although he had a word of warning for the player.

Jones told the club's official website: "Chops was foolish to say what he said. He thought he was helping out but he did it the wrong way - he knows he's made a mistake. It's been made a bigger issue than what it is - what we want now is to start hearing some positive things come out. There's so much rubbish being written about us at the moment in general."
